The 'completion progress' block is a time management tool for students and a potential preparedness tracker for staff. The block is a flexible, visual block option to show students what activities and resources are required to enable them to chart their progress through assessments, a module or a topic. The colour-coded block shows students what they have and haven't done to complete/view required tasks, with or without expected due dates. Teaching staff can see an overview of students' progress using the same colour code system by accessing the student overview (see below) or using the completion tracking Activity Completion report.
